First Reading: Level One.

A terrific retelling of an Aesop Fable where sneaky tricks and playful revenge take centre stage between friends. Titles in this level are designed to be the first real books a beginner reader will tackle and are designed to foster a lasting enthusiasm for books and reading. They are 32 pages in length, comprising the main story (up to 150 words), from classic tales to folk tales, delightful illustrations and 6 pages of fun, reading-related puzzles. Will be enjoyed with equal enthusiasm if read alone or together with a parent.

Other First Reading Level 1 titles include The Wish Fish, The Sun and the Wind and The Fox and The Crow.


The Fox And The Stork by Mairi Mackinnon

In this Aesop fable, Fox invites his friend Stork to dinner and plays a sneaky trick. A week later, the tables are turned when Stork takes her revenge.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
